Wall hangings came next. There is a little area over a kitchen desk and I thought it would be nice to look at some of my fiber art every day. Thus the concept of a different small quilt for every season. Spring is here, so the little tulip wall hanging is up now.
Then one year, I really went over the top decorating for Christmas and made a wall hanging for my front door. Those neat mangetic curtain rods work great for holding a small quilt on a metal door. The idea of quilted door wall hangings might sound silly, but they look really nice and it softens the look of a metal door. After the holidays, the door looked bare nekkid so I then made seasonal wall hangings for the door. The Spring front door wall hanging was put up this morning:
A few months ago, I was visiting my Aunt and her apartment entry way looked awfully plain, so I asked her if she’d like some small quilts for her front door also. I purchased another magnetic rod for my Aunt and hang quilts on her door now too. She really likes looking at a quilted wall hanging instead of a metal door, and so do her visitors.
Part II of my quilting journey will be tomorrow’s post. So stay tuned. There is more to come!
